Subban was picked by Timmins, developed in Gainey's era, and integrated in Gauthier's reign. None of these guys deserve the credit Timmins got. If I was dishonest, I'd have attributed him to Bergevin, because he signed his contract under Bergevin.
Do you have any proof that Bergevin decided on Galchenyuk or did he just let Timmins make the choice? As for signing an 18 year old top pick, every team did this this year. Thanks to the lockout everyone wanted to sign their young players to entry level deals rather than wait and see (I think in part this was because otherwise they wouldn't be eligble for camp). Do we have any indication that Bergevin decided that Galchenyuk was making the team, did he overule Therrien, like Gainey was rumored to have done with Price.
